Why LA Is Rooting For Unlikely LeBron James Comeback

11 June, 2017, 10:36 | Author: Rachael Silva

That could be a serious consideration down the line, especially if the Warriors win multiple championships, but the thinking here is James will stay put in Cleveland, for now.

With the salary cap expected to continue to rise, James will most assuredly once again exercise the opt-out in his current deal - either to re-sign with the Cavs or take his talents elsewhere for the remainder of his career. "I want to compete for championships every year, and so we'll see what happens". On the surface, they make little sense as a home for LeBron.

On August 8, 2014, during his homecoming rally in Akron, James told the media "I don't plan on going anywhere-I don't have the energy to do it again".

But, a couple of minutes later, Durant came up the court with his team down two and LeBron backed off just enough, gave Durant just enough space to make a three-pointer that looked as effortless as a layup. "He didn't want to play for Dan Gilbert", Patrick said.

If LeBron were to sign with the Clippers, O'Connor speculates that it would be in a scenario where he gets to play with his close friends Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony - aka the Banana Boat Boys. But the rest of the Cavs have fallen short of expectations in the first two games of the series. Green's absence proved to have a major effect on the outcome of the last year's Finals where the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.


When it comes down to it, numbers show us that James is one of the greatest to ever do it.

With James being an ultimate competitor, it's not too much of a leap to conclude he'd go someplace else and form his own Jedi-like super team to take on the Death Star in Golden State.

Iguodala wasn't in pain after the play, but if a roles were reversed and a Warriors player did the kicking, we could only imagine how fans would be reacting. Golden State small forward Kevin Durant had zero interest in contesting James when he elevated above the rim. The only time the Cavaliers beat them was on Christmas Day in Cleveland, when Durant was the one who couldn't get a shot up in the final seconds.

Golden State 73-9 Season versus Chicago 72-10 Season. That's more than all but a handful of all-time players, with only Dirk Nowitzki (54,568) ahead of him among active players (assuming Nowitzki will be back for the 2017-18 season, as planned). Wasn't destiny. Just sports.
